I grew up on either "here's a pot, go pick the lima beans or corn we're having for dinner" when I stayed on Grandma's farm during the summer or the "go get some of grandma's lima beans out of the freezer" veggies--we went up to Grandma's twice a year and came back with a cooler full of frozen vegetables. I can't even eat canned vegetables because they taste so bad to me. If you can't get fresh, frozen is the way to go. Along with that pinch of salt while boiling.
The only way I can eat canned peas is lightly boiled and then, and this is key, mixed in with buttered mashed potatoes. Peas and mashed potatoes work so well together.
